Root Canals

Eliminate the pain caused by an infected tooth.

Novi’s Trusted Root Canal Therapy

Root canals have a reputation for being painful dental treatments that don’t reflect the reality of modern dental care. Thankfully, advances in technology and techniques have made root canal procedures much more comfortable and efficient. At My Family Dental Novi, root canals are far from a dreaded experience. We’ve perfected our customer-focused approach to relieving patient pain, eliminating infection, and preserving overall oral health.

Designed to treat and save a tooth that is severely decayed or infected, root canals involve removing the damaged pulp from inside the tooth. Our dentists will clean and disinfect the inner chambers and then fill and seal the space to prevent further infection. By removing the infection and sealing the tooth, a root canal can help maintain your dental health and prevent the need for more extensive treatments. Contact us today to schedule your root canal appointment.

How Does the Root Canal Process Work?

A root canal is used to remove the nerve and pulp of the tooth that’s been severely infected. In order to avoid completely removing the tooth, we perform this dental procedure in two sessions. The first appointment involves the following:

  • Step 1: We’ll take a digital X-ray of your teeth to determine the extent of the damage
  • Step 2: A local anesthetic will be administered to the area for your optimal comfort
  • Step 3: Our dentists will drill out the bacteria and rot within your tooth
  • Step 4: A medicated dental filling material will be applied inside the newly cleaned area
  • Step 5: A temporary crown will be placed

During your second visit, our dentists will remove the temporary crown and replace it with a permanent restoration. This new crown will be precisely molded to match the exact dimensions of your tooth, making sure it fits perfectly and naturally.

Frequently Asked Questions about Root Canals

Having questions shouldn’t keep you from maintaining excellent oral health. The professionals at My Family Dental Novi are here to answer all your questions, starting with the most common. Don’t see your question below? Call us at (248) 305-1689, and we’d be happy to help you in any way we can.

Root canals are usually pain-free due to the local anesthetic provided before the procedure. However, patients have reported experiencing a pressure sensation during the treatment and slight soreness for a few days prior.

A root canal usually lasts 10-15 years, but other procedures, such as a dental crown, can elongate its life.

Plenty of factors contribute to whether or not you require a root canal. These can include sensitivity to heat and cold, pain while chewing or biting, or soreness or pain in the infected tooth. If pain and other symptoms are severe enough to interfere with eating and sleeping, that usually means your pulp has been severely damaged, and a root canal is necessary.
